Why Hopeful Adoptive Families Want to Adopt

The road to building a family can be bumpy. This is something adoptive families know all too well.

Many prospective adoptive families pursue adoption for one of the following reasons:

So, while you may ask yourself questions like, “Do parents love adopted children less?” and “Do parents love biological children more than adopted children?” you can feel confident knowing the answers are no. Adoptive parents have unconditional love for their adopted child.

Choosing Adoption After Infertility

2 Common Questions Birth Parents Have About Adopted Parents

It’s natural to worry that adoptive parents won’t love your baby as much as you do. But the truth is, they will.

Question 1: Do Parents Love Adopted Children?


Many adoptive parents have waited for years for this moment. They know placing your child with another family was not an easy decision, and they will be grateful that you helped them complete their family.

For most adoptive families, there’s a point where the distinction between “biological” and “adopted” doesn’t need to be made anymore. Your child will never doubt that they’re loved by their adoptive parents or part of the family.

Question 2: Do Parents Love a Biological Child More Than an Adopted Child?

No. Adoptive families love all their children equally and understand that every child is a gift.

While searching for the perfect family, you might see adoptive families with children and wonder, “If this family already has children, why are they considering adoption in the first place?”

Every adoptive family has their unique reason for choosing adoption:

No matter if the children they already have are biological or adopted, every adoptive family will be thrilled at the opportunity to raise another child. The adoptive family you pick will be more than ready for the experience of raising both biological and adopted children together.

For example, many parents of biological children who start the adoption process undergo additional training and counseling to ensure they are prepared for the challenges and rewards of raising biological and adopted children in the same household. You can always ask them about this when you get to know them, too!
